Ordering and Comparing Fractions


I was learning to work out what fractions were shown in the pictures.  It was easy.  I knew that I had to count the pieces that were shaded.  That was the top number.  Then I had to count how many altogether.  That was the denominator.  For the last question I had to order the fraction from smallest to biggest.  It was medium.  It was a bit easy because I knew the first one would come first and he last one would come last but the middle ones were tricky.  I didn't know if one third or one half would go first.

Fractions



I was learning that the bottom number tells us how many groups we need.  I thought this was medium because it was a little bit tricky and a little bit easy at the same time because you have to work out halves and that.  The extension challenge was easy for me to work out because I had already done the other ones so I knew the pattern.

Bike Skills

I was learning to do cool tricks on a bike at bike skills. these are the cool photos from bike skills.

Identifying Persuasive Techniques



I was learning to identify persuasive techniques.  For example looking at examples on the document. These are the techniques i had to identify: emotional appeal, expert opinion, testimonial, repetition, bandwagon and slogan. For example, Coke has a slogan - "taste the feeling".  The technique I find easiest to remember is repetition because its just repeating stuff.  The other ones are harder to remember because with the expert opinion, you might forget their opinion.  I think I did well with this one because it was a bit easy and a bit difficult at the same time.  My next step is to create something that uses these techniques.
